the perfection of the parade, all this gave the impression of a well disciplined group. In the following days I went to speak at General Altmayer's Headquarters at Valenciennes; to General Dame's, the youngest of our divisional commanders; then to General de La Laurencie, whom I had seen at Rouen just before the war and whose reasonable mind and courteous hospitality I enjoyed; to General Prioux and to General Janssen, who were both to become heroes of the defence of Dunkirk (General Janssen, a man of dry humour adored by lais officers, met his death after giving the order: `Die where you stand').
